The CC1121 User Guide describes the output power configuration using a formula described on chapter 6.1:
PA_POWER_RAMP = (<Desired Output Power> + 18) * 2 -1
However, the SmartRF studio evaluating the PA_CFG2 register does not follow this formula - instead it complies with the graph in the Datasheet: Output Power VS Power Setting.
Which method should I use? What is the role of the formula in the User Guide?
Thanks for your support
The values given in Smart RF Studio are based on actual measured values. The equation in the UserGuide is theoretically.
Please use SmartRF Studio to calulate the values.
